Maisanta database download

October 2, 2008

For some reason, probably not innocent, all public files with the Maisanta program online end up corrupt or useless. So, here is another try. I have placed the file over here, it is called santaines and it is about 300 MB. It is an .exe file. You download it and run it and it will install the Maisanta database in all its infamous glory on your PC. No Mac version available. I tried it, it takes about an hour with Cantv ADSL (ABA) and it works!

News from around the fascist robolution…

October 28, 2007

Getting ready to watch the Red Sox game, so in short you should learn about these events driving news in the fascist robolution::

—-Human Rights organization COFAVIC, warns
that it is the poor that has been affected the most by abuses when a
state of exception has been called in Latin America’s history.

—-Imagine
how bad things must be in terms of corruption and drug trafficking in
Venezuela, when former cheerleader of the revolution reporter Juan
Forero writes this piece
in today’s Washington Post. Just think, revolutionary military officers
like border postings because they can get rich and drug traffickers
have credentials from the intelligence police and the Ministry of
Finance. God help us form robolutionary destruction!

—-And
how about funny man the Minister of Culture, who incensed because
actress Fabiola Colmenares opposes the Constitutional reform and has
joined students demonstrations, thinks that maybe, just maybe,
people like her should not be hired by the Government. Calling her “a
minor personality of criollo fascism” because of her dissenting
position, the Minister proposes having a discussion as to whether
people like her should be hired in Government cultural projects. Jeez,
who is the fascist here? Does this remind you of Tascon/Chavez
database? Of course, its is the same discriminatory policy from a
well-known fascist Government.

—-And since we
are visiting the Ministry of Culture, how about Vice-Minister
criticizing the violence associated with the destruction of the
monument to honor Che Guevara? Wasn’t he the one that twenty years ago
was part of the guerrillas and was part of the group that kidnapped
William Neihous and was captured when he attempted to collect the
ransom?

And threatens dissenters that “his pulse will nor shake to stop those

Where should I
start? First of all the violence is coming from pro-Government groups.
Second, has he read Article 350 of the Venezuelan Constitution? It
seems to call for civil disobedience precisely against his type of

Additionally, the Constitution is being violated in the way the reform
is being done. Shouldn’t the people have the right to do that?

But his best phrase had to be referring to the students:”They had the gall to challenge the authority of the State”

Yes, when the State takes away your rights, you have th RIGHT to challenge its authority, you fascist!

—-And
Chavez did not hold his Sunday variety show “Alo Presidente” today for
the second Sunday in a row because of health reasons. I guess this is
one case where I do not wish someone a speedy recovery…

Sincor President admits existence of discriminatory list and says it is State policy

July 26, 2007

It is still a mystery how well the heavy crude partnership of Sincor will work under the “new” management of PDVSA, but what we do know, is that discrimination will be the rule of the day under the Presidency of Chavista Ysaac Donise, from what Tal Cual relates today about the meeting last Friday of the company’s workers with the old employees.

Said Donis: “I am here. Anyone that wants can ask me.” Those present began questioning the veracity of a new listing based on the infamous Tascon/Chavez database, in which people were rated as “apt” or “not apt” to work at the company.

Donis removed any doubts they may have had when he said: “This is a matter of the State. There is a list being circulated in the press and it is real. It came out of here, we are investigating it and whomever leaked it will go to jail. It will be applied to key personnel which is within or outside the company”

Said one worker: “He told us that at Sincor there are new guidelines: If on Fridays you have to dress in red, you do it and that’s it. It is an order from above. If you have to register in a “mision”, you do it and if someone does not like it, we will see about it”

Four engineers in the “Not Apt” category have already been fired by Sincor.

These are the words of one of the useful idiots of the revolution, known as commissars at other times and in other places.

By the way, shame on French company Total and Norwegian company Statoil, who are partners in the Sincor projects and allow these policies in their company. In fact, they chose to stay as partenrs of Sincor, with a 40% stake between the two.This would be absolutely unthinkable in their own countries. But that is something I have learned in the last few years, most companies and politicians are willing to tolerate orders of magnitude of abuses more in Venezuela that they would allow in their own countries.

I guess, we now have an “upgraded” Tascon/Chavez list ready to discriminate and persecute Venezuelans on the basis of their political ideas and foreign companies are participating openly in making money out of these operations.

Tascon/Chavez fascist list alive and well at Sincor

July 18, 2007

I have written extensiely about the fascist Tascon/Chavez list, which has been used extensively by the Chavze Government to discriminate Venezuelans according to their political preferences. The list has been used repeatedly by the Government to fire, deny contracts and benefits and only delusional fanatics of the autocrat/dictator continue going around denyin its use for political purposes.

While some Venezuelans thought teh use of the list ended with Chavez’ public recognition of its use and existence when he said on a Sunday Alo President quite a while ago, all evidence point to the opposite: The list is alive and well and continues to be used without scruples as not even the autocrat can now contain the hate and tools for hate he unleashed on those Venezuelans that are against his abuses.

The latest example is documented in today’s Tal Cual, when we are told about how four young engineers of heavy crude partnership Sincor were fired this week without explanation. Sincor is one of the projects in which PDVSA forced a 60% majrity on its partners on June 26th. and the company is now running the project.

The four engineers, whose names are Andrés Pieve, Laura Atencio, Nataly Barcia Durán and Zully Álvarez were simply called and told they were no longer working at Sincor.

Of curse, by now Chavista readers are saying they were probably fired for incompetence, bad manners or whatever and nobody can prove they were fired for opposing Chavez’ autocracy. Except that Tal Cual got hold of a carefully elaborated list in which each employee of Sincor is judged according to whether they signed for the consultative referendum, for the recall vote or had their signature repaired. This list is shown here including the names of those fired. An elaborate system of X’s next to each name and each referenda was placed next to each person’s name to determine whether they were “apt’ to continue working in the country’s oil industry. The four fired recently are clearly marked with a V and they all signed against Chavez, failing to pass the loyalty grade. None of those considered “apt” has been fired and those not yet fired with X’s next to their name are sure that they will soon join their co-workers in the ranks of the unemployed.

And some fools will continue in denial, much like Germany during Hitler or when the McCarthy list was being used in the US to blacklist and discriminate. And when it is all over, they will also claim they did not know, but we will know better

A new black list exposes once again the indecent revolution

April 23, 2006

In any
reasonable society, institutions are there to preserve the rights of people,
uphold the Constitution and provide the framework for grievances and appeals.
Not in the Venezuelan “revolution” No sooner had I started reading
local news when I
found
that none other than the members of the Venezuelan National Assembly,
in cahoots with the current Electoral Board, have apparently conspired to
violate the Constitution as well as the rights of those that aspire to become
part of the new Electoral Board (CNE) being selected by that institution.


According to a COPEI representative, five of those nominated to be part of the
new CNE were explicitly asked why they had not voted in either the municipal or
the parliamentary elections in 2005. This is a clear violation of the law and
the secrecy surrounding the electoral processes in Venezuela, which guarantee that the
information is secret. But, in the absence of the rule of law, this new abuse
of power and violation of the law will obviously go unpunished as there are no
longer institutional checks and balances in Venezuela.

This obviously raises the question of whether the infamous “Maisanta”
or Chavez or Tascon database or list (see category on the left) has now been expanded, updated
and upgraded with the two most recent electoral processes that took place in
2005. This administration is very efficient only when it comes to perverse activities like this. There is also the possibility that this was a special “favor”
by the CNE authorities to the Assembly. In either case, this represents another
violation of the law and the rights of Venezuelans that aspire to be part of
the new Electoral Board.

In any decent country, those members of the Board of the CNE who reportedly
want to be ratified in their positions should simply be disqualified for allowing
this abuse to take place under their noses. But there is no decency in this obscene revolution. And this nw “black list” simply exposes, once again , the lack of respect for their fellow citizens that most members of the Chavez revolution and its institutions have.

Maisanta List working link

December 6, 2005

IF you go to the following page, there is a link to download the maisanta prorgram which works:

www.maisantalist.com

Go there, at the top you will find a link to an executable (.exe) which
is 360 MB in size. Download it to your desktop and install it, it will
generate a program and database which requires 3 GB of disk space. If
you don’t have at least a DSL connection, don’t even try it. (It is quite heavy, many people trying to download it)

If you have contacts at newspapers or human rights organizations,
please show it to them, this software and database give a new meaning
to the concept of violating privacy and rights of individuals by a so called democratic Government, as well
as threatening those who are in it, on both sides of the political
spectrum, whether pro or against Chavez. Very shameful indeed.

(Thanks Bill for the effort)

The perverse and massive violation of the law and the rights of Venezuelans by the Government sponsored Maisanta software

December 1, 2005


This post contains material that is not new or even original. Both Alek Boyd and El Universal
have covered it. But it is quite different to read about the so called
Maisanta software than to use it. Today, a friend got me a copy of the
Maisanta software and database. After using it and playing with it for a
while; it is difficult to express the outrage I feel. This piece of
software and database demonstrates that we are living in a fascist state where the
rule of law is non existent and where people are being discriminated
against, blackmailed and their rights are being violated by those that
are supposed to defend them and the law. Those that insist in defending
this immoral administration should realize that all of this has no
possible defense. This is facsim at its best. The President of the CNE,
the Prosecutor, Chavez, The Vice-President and many others in
Government have cheated, persecuted an violated the rights of all
Venezuelans in a scale not seen since our last Dictatorship

To me this
implies that the following two Government officials, the President of
the Electoral Board Jorge Rodriguez on the left and the Prosecutor
General Isaias Rodriguez on the roght (no relation) should not only
resign, but be jailed and charged with massive violations of the rights
of Venezuelans and not following the laws, international treaties and
the Constitution:

The
same should be applied to Chavez, Vice-President Rangel, Governor
Diosdado Cabello and the members of the Supreme Court who have allowed
for the laws to be violated in such fashion, simply for their own
political gain.

While I was
shocked reading both Alek’s account and that of El Universal’s of this
program, the dirty feeling and uneasiness you get when using the
Maisanta software is truly remarkable. It all starts jokingly, people
telling you their ID numbers to “check them”, but very quickly turns
into a tense situation. The software is flawed, has information that is
incorrect, but additionally, it reveals people’s very personal
information from date of birth, to political preferences, to their
electoral history.

But I am getting
ahead of myself. The Maisanta software was first designed in May 2004
as a tool for Chavez’ campaign command to aid in getting the vote out.
But in doing so, the gross and obscene violation of the law and the
rights of the people implemented by these Government officials is
simply incredible and absolutely shocking.

The Maisanta
database includes every single registered voter in the country. I am
still trying to get the latest version, the one I obtained is from last
year, but the point is the same. It is likely the newest version
represents simply a deeper and more widespread violation of our rights.

The software
comes in a CD; you install it (3 Gbytes) and are ready to go. You don’t
know anyone that has it? Easy go to Plaza Bolivar in downtown Caracas
and for Bs. 3,000 or 4,000 you have your own copy. (The Chavistas
distributed over 35,000 of them last year for the recall vote and the
regional elections).

When it first
opens, you get the following window, for which I have used the ID
number of Isaias Rodriguez, our Prosecutor General, the man supposed to
uphold the law, but who has turned the other way on the face of this
very fascist tool:


From this, we
can have: his address, whether he signed or not to recall Chavez, his
date of birth, address (sometimes with telephone), as well as the
voting center that he uses. Additionally, he is “rated” as whether he
is a good voter or not, based on his recent activity as a voter.
Finally, the software is cross-referenced with whether the voter is a
member of two of the Government’s social missions, Mision Ribas, the
program to graduate people from high school in a short time, and
Vuelvan Caras, a “śscholarship” by which the Government gives people a
monthly stipend to participate in projects to work against poverty and
social exclusion

You may wonder
how I knew the ID number of the Prosecutor General? Easy, the software
has a very cumbersome sequential search tool that finds all of the
Isaias Rodriguez’ of the country, if by chance you did not know his ID
number. Imagine, if I was as unethical and immoral as them, I could,
for example, go check everyone with my last name in the country (all
related) and have a clear map of the political preferences in my family
tree. Is that perverse or what? Or think of people checking up in their
neighbors, co-workers and the like. I wonder how many articles of the Venezuelan Constitution are violated just by this fact. I counted eight, but really did not feel like counting further.

But note that in
the above window, there is a button that says “Listar cedulas de mi
Centro de votacion” (List ID numbers of my voting center). Press that
and you immediately get a list of everyone that votes in Isaias’ center
(who happen to be his neighbors) as shown partially here (I ahve degraded resolution on purpose so that names can not be read):


This window has
lots of information to discriminate, harass, classify and label people
near wher you live. You have the ID number, age, whether the person
signed petitions against the opposition, against Chavez, whether the
person is rated as “opposition”, abstainer and in columns not shown,
whether the person signed or not against Chavez and if his or her
signature were rejected or not. Then in the buttons below, you can
print, search, filter according to categories or simply click on the
button labeled “patriots”. Press that and you only see the true “Aryans” loyal to the process, those that signed against the
opposition. These are your revolutionary, fascist buddies, ready to die
or whatever for the revolution. In fact, if they are not on your side but they
participate in any of the misiones, you can threaten them with removal
of their meager perks, if they don’t want to follow orders. Cute,
immoral and perverse, no?


You can for example search for all people who are named Jorge Rodriguez
(below left) and find so many that you have to narrow the search (below
right) only to get 18 names if you are looking for the President of the
Electoral Board, with both last names Rodriguez and Gomez.
Conveniently, the address of the illustrious Jorge Rodriguez Gomez
(eigth from the top on the right farme), Head of the CNE, has been
removed to protect and respect his privacy. Remarkable and appropriate,
no?

There are many
more functions to this fascist and perverse software. You can look at
all centers in the country. Your center. Look for last names
nationwide, in your center, in your state.

But
let’s look at the data it contains and where it came from. First of
all, it contains all of the data in the National Electoral Registry,
including addressesandf somes telephones. This is the same registry
that should have been handed over to all political parties by the CNE,
six months before the election but the CNE refused to do so and was
only turned over a couple of weeks ago without addressees “to protect
the privacy of the people”. But how did the Chavistas get this copy?
And they have received periodic updates too! And they turn it have
cross linked it with the database of the Government’s Misiones, which
should also be confidential, as well as the death registry turned over
by the identification office to the Electoral Board last year.
Additionally, it contains all of the recall petition information and
all of the recent election informations for each and every voter in
Venezuela.

This simply
represents a massive violation of the rights of all Venezuelans, a
violation of the Constitution of the laws, a tool created for the
discrimination, persecution, repression as well as the blackmail of
those that receive aid from the Government (those “poorâ” that this
Government is supposed to care so much for), it indicates the absolute
neglect in the part of the Government in protecting the data of its
citizens and enforcing it and it clearly demonstrates that democracy
and respect of others are not part of the idiosyncrasy of this sad and
fake revolution. They have violated the very trust that they were given
by the people when they were elected.

This software
was coordinated way at the top. After the failure of Chavez’ command to
stop the petition for his recall he named his closest confidants,
Diosdado Cabello, Jose Vicente Rangel and Maripili Hernandez to the
Maisanta command. He held a swearing in ceremony on his nationwide
Sunday program. They are all responsible for this and will one day have
a day of reckoning.

In
any decent country with the rule of law, each and everyone of these
characters, fascists, liars, cheaters and abusers would be forced to
resign and be charged with crimes against the people, including the man
who is supposed to enforce the laws, the cynical Prosecutor Isaias
Rodriguez. Instead, they arrogantly come on TV daily defending what
they are doing in the face of perverse and fascist elements like the
Maisanta program, designed to persecute friend and foe alike.

(I really wanted
to convey the anger and disgust I felt using this program. This
represnts something that goes against the most basic feelings of
respect and humanity that I can think of. I felt like a voyeur capable
of peering into the lives of friends that were voluntarily given me
their ID numbers as a joke but had not realized all that could be
learned from it. In fact, until I sat down to write the post I did not
know how I was going to show any examples without violating someone’s
privacy. The examples shown, do not tell us anything new about these
cynical, sad and perverse characters of this stupid revolution)

More proof of the use of the Tascon Fascist list right at the top

November 22, 2005


I still
remember when I first started talking about the Tascon list and how it was
being used to violate the most basic rights of Venezuelans, that pro-Chavez
readers of this blog began questioning whether this was true or not, while people
I knew well were being denied jobs, their ability to deal with the Government
or even basic services like getting a passport or an ID number for the basic
fact that they signed the petition to recall President Hugo Chavez, a right in
the Venezuelan Constitution, put in by Chavez himslef. In time, the evidence
mounted, case after case of the use of list became public, of how it was being
used throughout the Government to deny the rights of people.

Then the ultimate
proof came out: First it
was the memo in which Chavez
asked the President of the Electoral Board to
hand over the petition database directly to Tascon, for which the Presidency
provided Xerox machines and personnel to copy the thousands of pages containing
the names of those that signed. Then, in his verbosity, the chief blabbermouth
of Venezuela told Deputy Tascon in his Sunday radio program that it was time to
put away or “bury” the list
. Those same readers never said anything and
most of them have continued to support this Government despite this clear
evidence of fascism, absence of the rule of law and abuse of the rights of people
that went right to the top.

Today, Tal
Cual revealed a conversation
between Rocio San Miguel, the former legal council to the National Council for
Borders and her former boss Feijoo Colomine, the Executive Secretary of that
Council. The Council is directly dependent from the Vice Presidency of the
Republic. San Miguel was not only fired from her job at the council, but also
from her teaching job at the School
of Air Wars for signing
the petition to call for a referendum to recall Higo Chavez. Moreover, her
husband, an Air Force Colonel, has had no assignment and has been at home ever
since his wife made her accusations public.

San Miguel
tried to go through the Courts but because the judicial system is controlled by
the Government, her case has gone nowhere. She is now planning to go to the Interamerican
System for the Protection of Human Rights. Today, San Miguel revealed the same taped conversation she had try
to use in her case
in which the Secretary General of the council,
recriminates her for signing the petition and tells her directly that the
decision to get rid of the people was made by Vice-President Jose Vicente
Rangel directly. In any country where decency prevails the Vice-President would
resign in the face of such an accusation of repression, abuse of power, human
rights violation and plain fascist behavior. In a country with the rule of law,
he would be indicted. In the Venezuela
of the revolution, this will not even be considered by these heartless crooks
without scruples. For those that do not speak Spanish, here are some excerpts
from the conversation between San Miguel (SM) and her boss Feijoo (F):

SM: This makes me very sad. In some
fashion Thais and I will move forward, but I don’t understand why they meddle
with Magally and with Guerra (Others fired), for only signing…how can you collaborate
with this?

F: Well, I am not going to argue,
because…the alternative is that I resign, see? And I am not going to do that

SM: But are you conscious that an
abuse is being committed??? Your Government has claimed thousands of times
about any citizen having the rights to exercise what they put in the
Constitution. And why that retaliation? I understand if you are a Minister, you
are fired, but we have technical jobs, I don’t go around making political statement
s of any sort.

F: There are decisions that are being
made, they make them, and I did not like it…I do not agree…But the Government
has made a decision

SM: To kick out all its employees that
signed.

F: Well, at least Jose Vicente (the
VP) made the decision in our case …The VP signed it.

There you
have it, evidence of fascist behavior right at the top once again. Anyone care
to defend it? How much are you willing to support and collaborate with this
type of behavior?

That is
why this post is going in the category: Tascon Fascist list. And it is a long list
of fascism and abuses by this silly “revolution”!

Socialism or McCarthysm by Teodoro Petkoff in Tal Cual

The Fogade
list that reached TalCual deserves a detailed investigation on the part of the
Prosecutor. In this case, we are not in front of a circumstance in which public
workers denounce discrimination or firings on an individual fashion, but facing
a systematic and complete job of classification and calification of ALL the
workers of a public institution according to their political preferences, to be
later accompanied by the use of the Tascon list to complete the previous
information with the data from the recall signatures.

It would
seem as if when Caldera Infante arrived at Fogade he “requested” that espionage
job of the new internal security unity. It is obvious that the work was done
using a payroll list that still included the previous President of Fogade,
Romulo Henriquez, as well as his trusted personnel, which can be freely hire
and removed, as is the custom, and, despite their classification as hard
Chavistas, they accompanied Henriquez in his departure. But the massive firings
of dozens of others workers of the regular payroll probably took place once the
Tascon list was consulted.

If the authenticity
of the document were to be determined-a job that belongs to the Prosecutor- a
number of disturbing questions arise. This repressive mechanism, simultaneously
McCarthyst and fascist, was an isolated case, localized at Fogade or it happened
also in other public institutions? It will be the job of the Prosecutor to elucidate
this point.

In any
case, this sort of backwards “Schindler’s list” evidences a methodical
repressive spirit, we could say sort of “industrial” scale, that coldly could decide
the destiny of people, totally depersonalized. You did not need to consult the
trajectory, curriculum, years of work. The workers had no face, they became
numbers and letter. They depended on those numbers and those letters.

The
Prosecutor’s Office either runs or races with this issue. This is not a
forgotten issue, facing a true Leviathan: but facing physical evidence of possible
abuses of power and political discrimination and segregation. Verifying it is
easy to do.

Adolfo Tascon’s
list and its consequences have transformed themselves in a public scandal. Chavez,
conscious of the magnitude of the McCarthiyst perversion, in a sleek move
forward, speared his sword on Tascon and shook off any responsibility. But he
produced a confession on his part, which requires no proof. However, there are
plenty of proofs. The one from Fogade shines on its own.

The
Prosecutor’s office, which grudgingly opened the inquiry, has material to work
with. Beginning with establishing things as obvious as Tascon’s responsibility,
which implies requesting the removal of his parliamentary immunity.

Or things
as obvious as the responsibility of Caldera Infante in the case of Fogade,
which should suppose his immediate separation from his job. It now depends squarely
on the Prosecutor’s Office whether McCarthyism establishes itself in this
country with impunity, as an official and definitive policy, or that it may b
defeated forever and excluded from our already stormy political life.
